“Mundane practicalities will not fully feed your spirit. Make time for wonder, beauty, magic, and connection to the sacred. If you have a ritual or spiritual practice, give it more time and attention on a daily basis. If you don’t have such a practice, it may be time to create one. Look for the light.”
Message from the Faeries: One of the reason why Christmas time and the holidays can feel so magical is because you give yourself a break from humdrum of your day to day life. If you think about it, you also perform certain special rituals this time of year. You might cut down a tree and decorate it. You might light special candles. You specially select or make presents and wrap them. You cook special food for family and friends. These rituals are what make Christmas magic.
This magic, of course, is enhanced by all the love and well wishes that is shared this time of year. It is so wonderful that so many of you take this time of year to be with loved ones and share in ritual. Your ancestors have been doing this for a very long time, and it’s a very important part of the year-cycle. It’s the best way to end a year and start a new pattern for the year to come.
Some people like to downplay the importance of ritual, and some people have outright removed it from their life. We think this is unfortunate. Even if you don’t believe in God, Jesus, Santa or any religious anything, it doesn’t matter. Ritual is important. All your action carries an energy. Ritual is just a way of expressing your energy, or tone. The intention behind the energy is put into the physical which will create a reaction. It’s very basic science, really.
While all of the gift giving at Christmas can be waived off as Capitalism at its worst, and there is truth to this, there is a greater force at work at the root of it – Love. Open your hearts and receive the love of this special time of year. Give love and receive love with big open hearts.
Help set the tone for the new year, and try not to get too caught up in your inner child drama that tends to surface this time of year. Do you really want to ring in 2016 with your inner child having a temper tantrum? Go out and have fun over the holidays. Spread joy and good cheer. If you stay home, fill your home with good music and warm food. Comfort your soul with things you enjoy.
Be like these magical cats in this card. Spread the love with your inner joy and have fun. If you feel the magic, let it shine.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone
We love you.
